Job Description

Overview

Though 9 in 10 Latino young adults say a college degree is important for success in life, fewer than 15% age 25 or older hold a bachelor’s degree. Voices College-Bound Language Academies exists to change that.

Voices is a public charter school network with a mission to prepare all students for the challenges of higher education through the context of an academically rigorous dual-language program. Every student, regardless of home language, graduates bilingual and biliterate in English and Spanish. As we expand to serve more traditionally underserved students, Voices seeks additional team members who share a commitment to its mission and believe joyful learning and world-class academic preparation are not mutually exclusive.

Role Summary

Voices Academies’ Family Recruiter will be an inspiring leader with an entrepreneurial spirit. The Family Recruiter will join Voices during a critical juncture as we prepare for the opening of our fourth school in 2018. Reporting to our Chief Growth and Community Engagement Officer (CGO), this part-time position (20 hours) will focus primarily on family/student recruitment. The Family Recruiter will be Voice’s ambassador in our new and existing communities and will serve as the primary point of contact to new, incoming families and applicants, cultivating demand for Voices schools. The ideal candidate will not only be innovative, but also have an unwavering commitment to Voices mission, vision and core values.

The Family Recruiter will be based out of our CMO office in San Jose. The job will require car travel to our local schools and communities throughout the Bay Area.
